IND vs AUS Dream11 Prediction, 1st ODI: The Indian cricket team is back in action after a long wait of nearly nine months as they take on Australia in the first ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground tomorrow. Virat Kohli-led team India is ready to roll but without the ruthless Rohit Sharma. Kohli's 'Men in Blue' have a strong roster, with Hardik Pandya's return adding much-needed strength to the lower-middle order. Check out here the best fantasy tips for IND vs AUS Dream11 Prediction for the 1st ODI match, including the batsmen, all-rounders, bowlers, and wicket-keepers in your Dream11 fantasy team.
The absence of an injured Rohit Sharma will certainly leave a hole at the top-order but as the Aussie skipper Aaron Finch declared, India still is a top-class side even without their best ODI batsman. With top-class quality players on both sides, it is difficult to make the Dream11 fantasy team for the first ODI of the India vs Australia ODI series.
Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami will be crucial to the fortunes of India, who will be looking to kickstart the two-month-long-tour with a solid win here at Sydney Cricket Ground. So, we should be in for a cracking start to the 3-match ODI series in Sydney.
Their opponents, the Aussies, on the other hand, with home conditions playing into the hands, coming with higher confidence after thrashing the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup winners earlier this year. The inclusion of star all-rounder Marcus Stoinis as a finisher has added much-needed balance to a team that boasts of a lot of firepower at the top of the order.
Sydney's pitch is batting friendly but also offers assistance to the fast bowlers. The average score in the first innings expected will be 270. The toss will play an important role as the dew will play their part in the latter half of the day.
